Special Edition: Announcing Novel Food #7
You may have been wondering about the new edition of Novel Food, the culinary/literary event that Lisa of Champaign Taste and I co-launched a few seasons ago. If so, wonder no more: Novel Food #7 is here. As in the previous editions, we are looking at published literary works (a novel, novella, short story, memoir, bio, poem) to find culinary inspiration.
If you are new to the event, and you are wondering what it is about, here are links to my portion of the roundup of all the previous editions. In each post you will find a link to Lisa's portion of the roundup. As you can see, we are slowly building an impressive collection of literary/culinary references: Autumn 2007, Winter 2007, Spring 2008, Summer 2008, Autumn 2008, Winter 2008.
Rest assured, this is a fun event. And at the end, you get a nice reading list, which will keep you company until the next edition rolls around, later in the year.
Here are the simple rules for participating in Novel Food:
- Prepare a dish of your choosing that has a connection to a published literary work (novel, novella, short story, memoir, bio, poem).
- Publish a post about it on your blog by Saturday April 4, 2009 (midnight, Pacific Time), referencing the Novel Food event. Include a link to this or to Lisa's announcement. If you wish, you can use the Novel Food logo.
- Send an e-mail to Lisa (champaigntaste AT gmail DOT com) or to me (simosite AT mac DOT com) and include your name, blog name and blog address, and a permanent link to your post. Please, include the words "Novel Food" in the email subject, so we can more easily retrieve the message in our inbox.
- Non-English submissions are fine. If possible, include an introduction in English.
If you don't have a blog, send us an email telling us about the recipe, the literary work that inspired it, and, if you have it, a picture what you made: we will add it to the roundup as well.
Note: If you don't receive an answer to your email or a comment on your post within two days of sending me or Lisa the email, please contact us again: sometimes email messages get lost in cyberspace.
Lisa and I will do a roundup soon after the deadline.
